I partnered with Baby Box for this post but all opinions are entirely my own.
Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times as you prepare for a new member of your family, however, it can also be one of the most anxious times of your life as learn how to go through pregnancy and prepare to become a parent. If you have been reading here at Simply Clarke for awhile, you have probably heard me talk about ALL of the reading I did when I first found out I was pregnant with Brooke. I can’t tell you how many articles I read on Pinterest and Facebook. Then, I went to my doctor and asked a million questions. I wanted to be informed and prepared. Now, as we have gone through two pregnancies, I am so thankful to be able to share great resources with all of you like -The Baby Box Co., Baby Box University.
Baby Box University is a great online platform developed by The Baby Box Co. that provides educational content from local experts about safe sleep, nutrition, breastfeeding, and many other topics. After watching these videos, I felt like they would have made me feel much more confident welcoming my first baby. I just remember the anxious feelings and hearing from experts about bonding with my newborn or even possible mood disorders would have really put my mind at ease. I just love how real and honest the videos are and they even cover tough topics like vaccinations.
They also provide you with a FREE Baby Box with helpful samples like diapers, breast milk storage bags, and more. Who doesn’t love FREE STUFF?? But most of all, great education from trusted sources. You can simply sign-up at The Baby Box Co., Baby Box University, watch a short series of videos, then receive a free Baby Box. Currently, it is available in California and 8 other states (CO, TX, OH, NJ, IA, AL, MN, WI) & Canada (except Quebec).
What is a Baby Box for you ask? Well, Baby Boxes are sustainably designed safe sleeping spaces. In Finland, these boxes have famously been used (in conjunction with education) to reduce the infant death rate to less than half of that in the U.S. The boxes also include premium baby products to support new parents during this exciting time in their lives. The box is easy to use and can be put in any room. It is a worry-free sleep space and come with the mattress, nothing else needed! Brooke loves kissing her brother in his box.
The Baby Box Co. has such a great mission to educate parents and provide safe sleep spaces. There is so much great information available through their course. Check it out for yourself and advocate safe sleep for infants!
